Can anyone recommend a chain and sprocket set?

I'm after a decent quality set. Are the kits from this place any good?

http://www.wemoto.com/bikes/honda/cb_250_ft_fv_fx_fy_f1_hornet_japan/96-01/

Or am I best buying an original honda chain and sprocket set?

their prices dont seem unreasonable! but you can get an OEM C/S kit from David silver for a very good price 8o

Steve, you don't have the part number do you?

I whacked in the part number for the OEM chain from the CB250FT jap book and it was 150 quid from David Silver. A bit much for me.

Try B&C Express they seem to be able to do most chain/sprocket combinations
for just about any bike!

Thanks mate.

Would you recommend staying with the existing gearing setup?

I moved to three less teeth in the rear to give the bike a better cruising top gear (1000rpm less than stock). Hasn't affected acceleration much.

hi guys... is this set ok?

Image

Swift Chain 520 x 110
Front Sprocket 1299 x 14 Teeth
Rear Sprocket 245/5 x 45 Teeth

its from wemoto

when i bought my bike the rear size is 42.. feeling a bit lacking of acceleration..
thinking about changing it to the standard size of 45.
